Bakhtin, Embodiment and Moving Image Art
| xi →
I wish to express my gratitude to my colleagues, friends and family for their support and encouragement during this project.
This book began as a dissertation in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Western Ontario. I am grateful for the critical feedback and guidance given to me by my doctoral committee: Christine Sprengler, Janelle Blankenship and David Merritt. As my supervisor, Christine was particularly generous with her commentary and erudite advice. In addition, I would like to thank Margaret DeRosia and Susan Schuppli for their early support of my work, as well as Elizabeth Legge, Chris Gittings and Joy James for their invaluable advice. For their help in opening up the world of Bakhtin to me I thank Michael E. Gardiner, Clive Thomson, Anthony Wall and Mireya Folch-Serra.
I am indebted to Ron Benner for his meticulous reading of and moving response to my work. I cannot express the depths of my gratitude to Jamelie Hassan for allowing me access to her work and for being such a wonderful friend. The same is true for Janice Gurney and Andy Patton, with whom I had endless conversations and challenging discussions on art and dialogue that directly shaped my approach in this book. My profound gratitude for the continual support and encouragement of key individuals in my life: my father-in-law Andy, my mother-in-law Susan, my sister Kim, Donovan, Maureen, Madeline Lennon and Louise Hull.
